1803 Marbury vs. Madison
  • One man who did not receive his commission was William Marbury.
  • Marbury claimed that the Judiciary Act of 1789 gave the Supreme Court the power to force federal officials to perform their duties.
    • Marbury argued, the court could order Madison to give him his commission.

Outcome of Marburyvs Madison
  • In 1803, the outcome of the case of Marbury vs. Madison forever changed the relationship of the three branches of government.
  • The Judiciary Act of 1789 was unconstitutional because the Constitution did not grant such power to the Court.
  • Therefore the Supreme Court could not force Madison to give Marbury his commission.
